Commitment to Action

Delivering Proven Maternal/Newborn Health Model Globally

Commitment by

One Heart World-Wide

In 2009, One HEART committed to reducing maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality in indigenous and underserved populations that experience high rates of home deliveries and high rates of maternal and newborn mortality in Nepal and Mexico. One HEART will partner with existing local organizations in these areas working toward the same commitment but lacking the requisite training, resources, and support. One HEART has developed an innovative program, Pregnancy and Village Outreach Training, for outreach into remote and resource-poor communities. Through PAVOT, One HEART will work with partners to provides supplies and skills training on maternal and neonatal health to local populations in order to create sustainable projects. One HEART's programs are culturally sensitive and designed to have local partners be key stakeholders in the process.
